Did you know that malnutrition kills 4 million children every year? That’s more than die from malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis – combined.
Thank God for peanut butter (seriously). When mixed with vitamins, peanut butter makes a perfect ready-to-use-therapeutic food (RUTF).
This “peanut butter on steroids” is the best answer yet to severe acute malnutrition. Three packets per day for about a month cures 94% of kids forever. In September 2013 we worked to raise awareness throughout the community. In 4 weeks, we were able to raise over $5,500, enough for 13,000 packets of RUTF and 100 lives saved!
